at treasury secretary timothy geithner on abc's "this week". >> this is no responsible wake we can govern this country with those low rates. they will have to go up. >> that's, of course referring to the democrats' demands that taxes go up for the wealthiest 2% of americans. yesterday, geithner said it is time for republicans to come forward with a plan that meets those demands from the white house. in response, representative tom cole from republican said republicans do not need a counter offer and that he believes closing loopholes and passing deductions is enough. so far republicans are refusing to raise the actual tax rate on the wealthy and refusing to pass tax breaks for the majority of americans unless they get what they want. now, just to give you an idea of what is in the president's plan he is calling for $1.6 trillion in additional tax revenue over the next decade. he wants $200,000,000,000 worth of stimulus spending. in return, he is offering 600 worth of cuts to medicare and other programs. we will be right back. alright, in 15 minutes we're goi

for anywhere. >> all right. >> right to work is about lessening worker's voice in government and the workplace. >> if it's not about economic development, is it more of a political action against the progressive movement? >> i absolutely thingk it is. we have seen all kinds of voter suppression, suppression of democratic rights. this is another example. the wealthy -- this is really driven by wealthy forces in michigan that you know well, the debos. family others dick debos, and they want the wealthy to get more and more and the workers to get less and less, to try to push us down to third-world level on wages and benefits. it's outrage ooze. it shows the tremendous -- actually we did him 10 days of really fruitful discussions about how to change the dynamics in michigan, how to change the climate, with the governor, with the head of the senate, the head of the house. then the right-wing pressure came down and the governor n my view, caved to that pressure. >> but i heard that one of the entities also funding this in addition to the bill yon air,
